Persian Cat Replicas

Replicas of the classic persian cat are made in batches and sold for $300 each. I do not take a waitlist or preorders at this time. They are very time consuming and most of my time is spent on my other room guardians. I've looked into manufacturing but I haven't found anything I'm satisfied with. If you want announcements and news regarding the persian cats as well as all my room guardians, you can join my email list.

 

History of the Persian Cat

For those that do not know, the Persian Cat Room Guardian was used in a popular reaction meme that went viral early 2016. The image was used without my permission or credit but succeeded in giving me plenty of interest from fans interested the whereabouts of its origins. The full history of its origin as a meme can be read here.  

The room guardian unattached to its internet fame was from an early generation of room guardians, as you might be able to tell from it's smooth lacking of detail face, or the real rabbit fur instead of faux fur. It was listed for sale on my etsy shop for a long time before I decided to give it to my sister's friend as a birthday present. It wasn't one of my favorite room guardians at the time, so it was not a huge loss to me. Little did I know 3 years later, it would be such a hot item on the internet. 

After it's peak of fame, I had many people ask about buying an exact copy of the famous persian cat room guardian. I rejected the concept in the early months and even auctioned off a new and improved version, but warmed up the concept of exact copies later in the year when I borrowed the original temporarily from its owner. I took a mold of the original face sculpt and made resin copies. I sold a batch of five remakes before Christmas 2016. 

 If I could mass produce the cat, I would have been able to profit off it much more than I did. Since I never had any problem selling any of my room guardians, I didn't need anymore demand for a product, I needed more product. But I do make recreations when I can, and I have opened a RedBubble shop with some meme merchandise.
